While appearing on FOX NEWS, #TulsiGabbard, who has no experience in foreign policy unless you include chillaxing with mass murderer Bashir Assad, claims
#KamalaHarris ‘not qualified’ to be commander-in-chief because she has no FP experience.

This seems a good time to remind everyone that #TulsiGabbard's history of #homophobia is long and damaging. Her blaming her father when she was casting votes against #LGBTQ people in the HI state legislature is deceptive af.

In the state legislature when she was fighting against same-sex marriage while #KamalaHarris was marrying gay couples in San Francisco, Gabbard said,
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."
On. The. Floor.

Before the speech kicks off: We expect the President to use this platform to spread lies & try to justify his attacks on marginalized groups. Want to know the *REAL* #SOTU? Check out our State of the Trans Union 2019: medium.com/transequalityn…

.@Alyssa_Milano makes a strong point about the connection between @realDonaldTrump 's #MAGA hats and KKK white hoods. It's a point that can't be ignored. (thread)
If MAGA hats are not analogous in many ways to the Klan's white hoods, why does former KKK grand wizard David Duke hold the #MAGA hat boy out as a symbol to rally around by having his picture on his Twitter header?

If MAGA hats are not deeply connected to the KKK, why did David Duke say that he and @realDonaldTrump share the same message?

Today, the Supreme Court granted a Trump Administration request to begin implementing a ban on transgendered Americans serving in the military as cases move through the courts.

This isn’t just a slight. It is the justice system wielded as a tool of hate.

In a perfect world, trans members of our military would get their fair due from the Commander in Chief they serve under.

Respect. Appreciation. Admiration.

Instead, years of sacrifice and honorable service - whole careers - are now poised to be severed in service of bigotry.

I have never served.

I’ve never put myself in harms way or spent holidays deployed far away from friends and family.

I’ve never faced the barriers of living in a world sometimes quicker to hate than accept me.

BREAKING: Federal court rules that our preliminary injunction against @realDonaldTrump’s #TransMilitaryBan must stay in place/ #LGBTQ lambdalegal.org/in-court/legal…
The court handed us a significant victory on a number of fronts tonight, while also denying a part of our summary judgment motion. The court also clearly did not buy that @realDonaldTrump & @VP’s implementations “plan” from 3/23 is new.
“The Court also rules that, because transgender people have long been subjected to systemic oppression and forced to live in silence, they are a protected class.”

^^^

This is a legal gem from tonight’s ruling. The court ruled that transgender people are a protected class.

Good morning from Seattle! We’re here at the US District Court for the Western District of WA to fight for a permanent block against @realDonaldTrump’s discriminatory #TransMilitaryBan.

Follow this thread for live coverage from inside the courtroom! Hearing starts @ 10am PDT.
If you need to catch up before the coverage, here's our very own @sashabuchert telling us a little about how we got here.
The facts are in. The judge has everything she needs to rule. We won’t be deterred by any of the recent attempts to dress the #TransMilitaryBan up as anything more than a baseless, immaterial attack on our community.

BREAKING: The @WhiteHouse just released its proposed "plan" (if you can even call it that) to implement @realDonaldTrump's transgender military ban. bit.ly/2Gj9687
And the @DeptofDefense "report" (we're using that term only because they are): bit.ly/2GmDjTO
This is nothing more than a transparent ruse cobbled together with spittle and duct tape designed solely to try to mask discrimination. A plan to implement an unconstitutional decree is an unconstitutional plan.
